To the Lavoie family. I am sorry just to hear of your mom's passing. She was a great mom and neighbor to all of us Kings at the projects. I hope you take comfort knowing that she is smiling down from the heavens.

I am very sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I will always remember her as a kind and caring person. When growning up she was like a second mom to the cutlers. May she rest in peace
